Taking three wins in three races, the French driver Dorian Boccolacci (Energy / TM) remained unbeaten in the heats for the WSK Master Series at Sarno. The Polish driver Karol Basz (Tony Kart / Vortex) would have challenged his supremacy without an 8th place in the first race which relegated him to second place in the standings with eight points. The fight remained tight with another Pole, Karol Dabski, impressive on his Praga / Parilla, and the Italian Kevin Lavelli (Top Kart / TM) who had already been spotted at Zuera. In fifth, Martin Kodric (FA Kart / Vortex) was ahead of Alessio Guazzaroni (Top Kart / TM) and Ben Barnicoat (ART GP / TM)
There was a great performance by Lance Stroll (Zanardi/Parilla) in 8th place ahead of Tom Joyner (Zanardi / Parilla) who had been back in 28th in qualifying. Often jostled, Callum Ilott (Zanardi / Parilla) was only 12th. Julien Darras (Tony Kart / TM) showed good performance for his second race in KF with an interesting 18th place, Valentin Moineault (ART GP / TM) finished up 22th.

However Marco Ardigo (Tony Kart / Vortex) took control of the first final for KZ2 in the WSK Master Series Sarno from Ben Hanley (ART GP / TM), while Bas Lammers (Intrepid / TM), starting 6th was taken out. Paolo De Conto (Birel / TM) was installed in the lead from the third lap, but the fight became intense behind him for the places of honour. Hanley was pushed in second position, Ardigo was dislodged on lap 5 with Charles Leclerc (ART GP / TM) third. Setting the fastest lap, Hanley passed his teammate from Monaco three laps later to gain 3rd place.
Meanwhile, Max Verstappen (CRG / TM), who started 18th due to a retirement on the second lap, closed on the front of the pack at high speed. The gaps tightened on the approach to the last lap ... De Conto easily won the race, but Leclerc crossed the line in second position followed by Jorrit Pex (CRG / TM), Ardigo dropping to 4th and Hanley 10th ahead of Jaime Alguersuari (Intrepid / TM). Verstappen finished sixth behind Jérémy Iglesias (Lenzo / LKE).

The first half of the season is over and WSK paddock is now getting ready for the two remaining rounds, with drivers who need to widen the gap and other drivers who - on the contrary - need to achieve remarkable recoveries. WSK Promotion European kart racing is moving to Sarno (Italy), on 21st April, then - on 2nd June - the closing round of Genk (Belgium). Let's have a look at the standings after the first round of Muro Leccese and the half-season Spanish round, run in Zuera.
Zanchetta takes over lead in KZ2. Marco Zanchetta (Maranello-TM-Bridgestone), winner of Final 2 in the first round of La Conca, was not the KZ2 leader at the beginning of the Spanish round. The leader, in fact, was the other Italian Riccardo Negro (DR-TM-Bridgestone), who, in Zuera, was not able to fend off Zanchetta's attacks. Zanchetta won both the finals and took over standings lead with 145 points, while Negro is second with 104. The duel between the two Italian drivers could have another protagonist in the forthcoming round in Sarno: the Czech Jan Midrla, (Birel-TM-Bridgestone), who has had a consistent pace so far and he is third with 80 points. The other drivers have wider gaps, but the top drivers should keep an eye on them anyway, especially on the Swedish Joel Johansson and the Lithuanian Simas Juodvirsis (both on Energy-TM-Bridgestone).
